Kobo Books For iOS Updated With Redesigned Annotations Page And Other Improvements
Kobo Books for iOS has recently received another update. The new update to the official universal iOS app of the popular online e-bookseller includes enhancements to a number of its dedicated sections. For starters, the update delivers redesigned pages for the table of contents and annotations. Note, though, that these redesigned pages are applied to the app's iPhone and iPod touch version only. The new table of contents page offers little beyond certain small tweaks. These include removing the title and author of the current book and replacing the dotted line separators with solid line ones. But in the case of the new annotations page, the changes are more substantial. Effectively, the new annotations page is a condensation of three pages that used to be available separately: the bookmarks, highlights, and notes pages.

But again, this new option is available on the iPhone and iPod touch only. Moreover, the update makes community stats available on book overview pages. Improved Twitter integration, stability improvements, and bug fixes are also included in the update. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 5.0 or later, the new version of Kobo for iOS is available now in the App Store for free.
